Founded in 1983 The Sportsman's Charity has a reputation for running first-class events and distributing funds to a wide range of primarily Scottish charities working in the fields of sport, children and young people, disability and the disadvantaged.
Each year, the Charity identifies two partner organisations which will receive a significant proportion of the funds raised at The Sportsman's Dinner.
In recent years the charities have included Combat Stress, Hearts and Balls, Beyond Boundaries, My Name's Doddie Foundation, Edinburgh School Uniform Bank, Teenage Cancer Trust and Edinburgh Community Food.
In 2020, the two partner charities are The Eve Appeal and the Tom Smith Testimonial Fund.
As well as supporting some of the larger established charities, The Sportsman's Charity takes a special interest in smaller organisations for which a modest donation can make all the difference.

The very successful Sportsman’s Charity Dinner 2019 was held at Prestonfield on Friday 8th February 2019 on the eve of the Scotland v Ireland 6 Nations match, the main sponsors being Carbon Financial Partners and Prestonfield House.
The dinner raised over £60,000. This allowed us to support both our featured charities, Hearts and Balls and Beyond Boundaries along with many other charities.
